Back from Adelaide.

I took Tom to Adelaide yesterday and we caught up with the Endocrinologist and Diabetes Educator.

We are changing the site that the pump goes into and getting a backpack for him to put his pump on his back. This way he will not touch his tube or site so hopefully he won't have such a problem with insulin getting through and the site will last for three days.

I am going to keep in close contact via phone and email with both the Endo and DE so hopefully we will get a good picture soon of the basal rate that Tom needs.

Here is a picture of the pouch we are hoping to get for Tom to put the pump on his back.

Thanks so much to everyone that has been praying for us. We will soldier on.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
